Hi.
In Vb.net I am appending data to a SQL database using the following code
    oSQL = "Insert Into Table1 ([oDate],[oText], [oNumber]) Select '" & oDate & "' as Expr1, '" & oText & "' as Expr2, " & oNumber & " as Expr3"
I want to select the last row appended to make sure that it actually was. Since the ID field is automatically generated this is a little tricky

SELECT MAX(<YOURIDFIELD>)
FROM Table1

Or if it's an Identity field you can look into SCOPE_IDENTITY().

What exactly are you wanting to do with selecting the record back?
